New board - Preservation of Service


Drastic Action being taken - please read and share.
Fellow TAMBers: You are a registered user to the Tartan Army Message Board.
There are some impending changes to the board which you should be aware of.
The content of some threads and comments of certain board members on TAMB has meant that Google Ads pulled the plug on us some months ago. This was the main source of income for the TAMB for some time now.
Unfortunately, Google were unable to be helpful in any way and refused to speak to us to help resolve the situation so this has continued for more than six months. This means that TAMB has had virtually no income for more than 6 months either (we need to generate at least £2500 in income each year in order that the board can continue).

This situation needs to be rectified and the proposed solution will seem quite radical to board members.
We propose to wipe the entire board of previous thread content and restart with a completely ‘blank’ board. This will happen on Tuesday 26 August so you have until then to copy and save any threads that you wish to retain or eventually repost to the ‘new’ board.

Apologies to all for the upheaval but this seems to be the only course of action left to us.
Google Ads have been decidedly unhelpful in our attempts to rectify this problem. In order to maintain control of the board and prevent this situation occurring again, the moderation strategy will become much stricter.
Obvious trolls will be punted, blatantly insulting or libellous comments will be deleted and in certain cases, this may result in the board member account also being banned / account deleted without previous fanny-ing about and discussion with the offender.

We hope to archive all historic board posts for reference. The URL for this will be notified in due course. Posting will only be permitted on the new board. The URL for the new board will hopefully remain the same as at present although this may not be the case if Google as our ‘advertising partner’ remain completely unhelpful and unforgiving. All PM's, usernames and other such info will transfer over to the new board so that registration should not be required.
Thank you for your understanding. Please avoid libelous comment, personal abuse, posting pornographic images and don’t include pornographic links in your posts in future.

Thank Christ, I've posted a right amount of shite I'd like to never see again.

I only ever read the board for the porn links. That's me away ...

Until the 26th, it should be a 'Anything Goes' period, as it all get scrapped and we all begin again in a utopian universe

 

Somebody start up a 'Burds You'd Love To Ride' Thread!!

I hope we can have another one of them on the new site. My favourite thread for a long time.
Will the url be the same and will we keep our nicknames or should create new accounts?

All mods are bunny rabbits, well until the 26th of August and then their actually quite a nice bunch again  :love:

Reset the post counts!
:( :( :( It's a sad day for TAMB historians everywhere...

Did this no happen before, or is it my imagination?

As long as the Elite posters get to keep their post count, I don't see any issue...

Do all posters have to transfer over to The The TAMB after liquidation of The original The TAMB?

Will the mods still claim it's the old board and that nothing has changed?

Will I be called the kumnio now?

Good. Too many windae lickers fae Gorgie on the board.
So what's going to happen to the elite posters the ones that have a hunner million posts are they wiped ?
Are we allowed to post porn until then??

Will I be called the kumnio now?

Hahaha! :-D

Good. Too many windae lickers fae Gorgie on the board.

 

:ok:

Will I be called the kumnio now?

Just Kev, i think, Kev. 

Sorry I may be a little naive here and this is by no means a dig at the administration but I have run a similar type forum (on different software) for over eight years for free at first and then a small fee to the hosting company so cannot see why this forum needs such oceans of money to run it? If it is to pay admins then I am sure you'd find those who'd do it for nothing.

It works out at £200 a month for hosting.

 

Seems pretty decent value for a website with so much traffic.

Do all posters have to transfer over to The The TAMB after liquidation of The original The TAMB?

 

 

Surely its just the threads behind the TAMB that have been liquidated, not the TAMB itself? Therefore its still the same TAMB. Can we claim the history of the old TAMB too?

The current board is no age. A tragedy. Thoughts with the family etc...

RIP.
